“The themes of the EP are change and gratitude,” Sara explains. “As I live longer, I understand that the only constant in life is change, and I think we’re all beginning to grasp that a bit more starkly now. With the realization that nothing will ever stay the same comes immense gratitude for the fleeting moment."
Matt WallockAmerican Songwriter
“Sometimes, to expose oneself at one’s most fragile and vulnerable is the ultimate act of courage. And if that’s the case, then Sara Melson is one of the most fearless singer-songwriters on the planet. Her quiet strength shines through in her winsome space-balladry… She just rocks, plain and simple.”

“Melson connects with her straight-to/straight-from-the-heart candor.”
“Sara Melson’s cover of the Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations”… is immersive, lolling ahead in a haze of distortion, and its moody piano sets the piece’s tone exceptionally well… The song fills the auditory cracks even better than the original. Shines… a triumph of melancholy.”
“‘Coming Out’ is an anthem of self-possession... for anyone who is ready to step, fully, into authentic self.”
Adam PollockBlackbook Magazine
“Like Laura Nyro hooking up with Beggars’ Banquet-era Rolling Stones… Something special.”
Steven MirkinDaily Variety
“Gorgeous, pensive... dreamy.”
Bobbie Jean SawyerWide Open Country
“Melson’s voice and technique continue to mature and this third and latest effort is a sometimes melancholic, sometimes tough voyage through a dreamland of beautiful sounds and lyrics. The songs’ great strengths — and her music’s in general — lies in their honest emotion and clear intelligence.”
Chris AtamianHuffington Post
"....swooning with a balance of confidence and vulnerability that is equal parts country swagger and crooning soulster."
“We at Yahoo Music have had our eye on Sara Melson for some time, having identified her years ago as an artist to watch.”

“It was here (at Hotel Cafe) that I discovered Sara Melson… Her music was raw, compelling, visceral and urgent. Her notes often cracked when her raw emotions were exposed… Her white lace dress glowed in front of the red curtain backdrop like an angel in a David Lynch fever dream… Exquisite.”
"...ethereal vocals and enchanting melodies that echo Kate Bush."
